  1. Love it! What are the bird and flower oval thingys? are they the mop hand stamped?

  2. Thank you both for your kind comments! The ovals are unpolished mother of pearl discs, sort of a shimmery grey. They were made in the USA some time between the 1920's and 1940's. I've stamped them with ink and some of my favorite rubber stamps - they take the permanent alcohol based ink really well.
